This is especially true concerning one's Cross. Tarot, Numerology and Kabbalah and even the I Ching allow one to see Astrology as a more fractal-like structure, giving great meaning, detail and accuracy to astrological interpretation. Above is a useful way of understanding the Minor Arcana and Decans in terms of their Kabbalistic source. I decided to draw this colored Tree of Life simply because it solves a lot of conceptual problems an individual might have when first looking into the subject.
From looking at the colored Tree of Life it becomes very simple right off the bat as one can see both what the Kabbalistic " Four Worlds " represent, and also how the astrological Decans and Minor Arcana map to the Tree of Life itself. If someone for example has Jupiter within the first 10 degrees of Leo, we can interpret this as Jupiter in the 5 of Wands, or Jupiter in the Fire portion of Geburah, the 5th sphere of the Tree of Life. Even if one is doing a Tarot reading it's still very useful to understand the cards' corresponding placement and influence within the Tree of Life diagram.
As you can see each of the ten sephiroth has four elemental expressions within it. If we look again, for example, at someone with Jupiter within the 5 of Wands decan, we would say his Jupiter is within the Atziluth spirit of Geburah strength. If it were in the 10 of Disks it would be Assiah material of Malkuth the kingdom , etc. Of course one can make a study of the vast hierarchy of angels archetypal intelligences within the Kabbalistic system, but keeping it simple and understanding the basics of how all this relates to your own psychology and your own inner archetypal landscape is where the real power is.
Each card of the Minor Arcana has a planet associated with it to help explain the dynamics of that particular card. The planet associated with this card is Mars. The title of this card is Dominion and signifies male creative energy bursting forth and potentially destroying that which is in its path. The action of Mars is not entirely negative in this respect. Being the very first Decanate of the very first sign, the Two of Wands in the sign of Aries is a sort of a grand uprooting of all the possible stagnant energy that may have accumulated in the time leading up to it.
This card signifies the turbulence of new beginnings, of breaking the mold and bringing new life, fresh ideas, and intense creativity into ones sphere of being. Aries is the sign, at least in the northern hemisphere, which signifies the arrival of Springtime emerging out of the cold Winter months before it. It is a time of supplanting the old with the new. On each card of the Minor Arcana you will see the proper symbols indicating the planetary rulerships of that card. These symbols will be placed in various areas depending on the card and are not the same for each.
If you are looking at the card indicating 10 to 20 degrees of Libra, the Three of Swords, Sorrow, you will see the symbol of Libra and also the symbol of Saturn.
If you are looking at the card indicating 0 to 10 degrees of Libra, the Two of Swords, Peace, it follows that you will see the symbol of Libra along with the symbol of its descriptive corresponding planet, the Moon. Some feel that these traditional planetary correspondences are antiquated and have even changed some of them. While I do agree that it is perfectly alright to change things to make better sense of them, the current correspondences shown here and on the cards serve well enough to describe the tone of each card. You will also notice that there is a pattern with these correspondences.
These are the 7 traditional planets of Astrology and this pattern is repeated 5 times around the Zodiac plus one more Mars correspondence in the last Decan of Pisces. Archetypal spiritual World. Creative emotional World.
Astrological Correspondences of Court Cards
Formative mental World. Material physical World. The Four Worlds of Kabbalah have their reflection in many spiritual systems around the world, and the number 4 itself has many correlations and correspondences one could mention. Ouspensky is quoted from his book Symbolism of the Tarot : After I learned the first three numbers I was given to understand the great law of Four - the alpha and omega of all. The four letters of his name are in me, and I am in all.
Which tarot card rules your zodiac sign?
I am in the four elements. I am in the four seasons. I am in the four cardinal points. I am in the four signs of Tarot. I am completion. I am the result. For him who knows how to see me there are no mysteries on earth. In Lon Milo DuQuette's book Chicken Qabalah , on page 79, he gives a somewhat humorous story as to how the Four Worlds operate by picturing them as a single 4 story building. The top floor corresponds to Atziluth, the 3rd floor to Briah, the 2nd floor to Yetzirah and the 1st floor to Assiah.
Within these different floors are different "modes of being" that help in the process of creation, of bringing the "highest" world of Atziluth-like conception down into the material realm of Assiah. These four stages are generally what everyone engages in at various points in the creative process. Within the story, the creative process is illustrated through the simple existence of chairs, that is their conception, creation, form and material.
Tables Based on Thoth Tarot Deck
We have the first basic concept of "sit," being the first general "is-ness" of the world of Atziluth - conception. Then comes the many creative inspirations, ideas, aesthetics, and excited "aha" moments of the world of Briah - the creative. After this stage comes actual measurement, planing, trial and error, cutting, assembling, etc.
Then, of course, we come to the actual "world" of chairs, whole and complete unto themselves, within Assiah. One can think whatever they want about Plato, but when human experience is divided into four separate modes of being like this one can easily see the Tarot and Kabbalistic correlations.
There are many correspondences one could make, and it doesn't have to be rooted at all in Platonism. But, the keywords and descriptions used to illustrate each of these four "worlds" in the Platonism video match nearly perfectly the interpretations of the Four Worlds of Kabbalah, and hence also to the four suits of Tarot and the four elements in Astrology. One could create a synthesis of the same basic principles as found in Kabbalah, Tarot, Astrology, and the I Ching with the Platonic Tetralogies and metaphysics as illustrated in the video.
Always remember that when dealing with metaphysical systems, it is good to be rooted both in tradition but to also allow for a little leg room with free association. This can allow for greater synthesis between seemingly disparate systems and one may find many interesting correlations and points of agreement between them. For example, someone familiar with astrology and the I Ching might say "But, fire signs do not resonate with Yin and the Moon, so that category and correspondence is 'wrong. In the chart above one may wonder exactly which way things are "moving.
There is both involution and evolution, a constant churning like motion between the dualities where different qualities are exchanged. Kuhn has written much about this dynamic, for example in his Tree of Knowledge work where he uses the life of a tree as the perfect analogy and symbol of personal cultivation and maturation as one relates to his or her environment. When looking at the Kabbalistic Tree of Life diagram, understand that there is a descending and an ascending here as well, an involution and evolution.
There is the lightning path striking down the tree and the serpent path coiling up the tree.

Contact us. Astrological Correspondences of Court Cards. I hardly ever post in Using Tarot Cards but I am wondering what works for you as a reader in terms of astrological correspondences of the court cards, if you use them. I know that there are several different ways we can use them, and these configurations will come out in our readings as we see them, our energies as card-shufflers, -readers, and -pullers aligning the cards up and giving us their messages irregardless of which card means who, why, what.
I am a bit lazy when it comes to reading books about tarot reading, I thought it would be helpful to have a bibliography of sorts that shows us which correspondences from which authors are used. This would also make this Thread unique in that we could have a list of authors' views all in one place without Googling all over Aeclectic for them piecemeal. It would also be interesting to compare and contrast the different authors and artists! This is one of those oft asked questions and I'll give you a preview of the answers you're going to get.

If the decks offer any hints, in the books that came with them or on the cards, that's what they go for, and they leave their personal opinions out of it. Whatever the deck they're using says is the court card's sign, that's the court card's sign. Not necessarily in that order, and usually pegging Wands as fire signs, Cups as Water signs, Swords as Air signs and Pents as Earth signs.
This means that the reader has decided that Kings are Cardinal signs or fixed, or mutable and that's that. Likewise they've decided what the queens are and the knights.
Maybe the Knights are mutable. Or maybe the Kings are fixed. The point is, their decision makes use of Cardinal, fixed, mutable to decide which sign goes with which court. The reader will have their own personal reasons as to why they feel that court card is that sign. I'm a virgo. Gemini or Libra? Obviously, readers can do what they like and what they feel they need to do BUT It's good to remember that the Astrological assignments to the courts is there usually to help the reader figure out who that court might be if they don't know.
Well, the astrological assignments help there as you, the reader, can ask, "Do you know a Capricorn?
